Don't get it ??

Hi tOSU friends.  

Not here to gloat, but am just relieved my Sooners could make up for last year's game and keep our two great programs on an even keel against one another.

I hope we have another home and home in our lifetimes.  These are always great series.

Good luck the rest of the year.

Really, similar offensive problems to last year.  The running backs played great but they didn't give them enough carries.  They didn't pay off the run enough and instead kept looking for short routes instead of going downfield.  It's the same theme every time they struggle on offense, which is frustrating.  Can't blame the oline - Barrett had all day to throw most of the time, but the receivers are pretty average and he looks like a shot fighter who can't pull the trigger.

I thought urban said this wasn't going to happen again?

The offense is atrocious, your best player is a true fresh RB that gets fewer carries than the qb. 

Carlos Hyde vs sparty, zeke vs sparty, Weber vs Clemson, now dobbins vs Oklahoma. Don't give the ball to your stud RB in big games, makes sense.

Based on 2 games, this is a fringe top 20 team. 

I thought the D played alright, but it's not a championship type defense, it's good enough to win a title if it had any offensive help, but well, it doesn't

Now we see why Urban wears out his welcome.While he is looking up at the mountain he is falling into the ravine.Where is the innovative/winning/resourceful wizard? JT Barrett isn't the answer even Ronnie Milsap can see it.Urban has needed to try something different for quite sometime.JT is in his 5th year his ship has sailed.It was on display for all to see

On the bright side, the Buckeyes still stand alone atop the B1G East standings.

Urban is still probably the second best coach in college football.  The Sooners are talented and experienced and played a great game, but the sky isn't falling in Columbus.  
Buckeyes can still win the conference, and could still make the playoff.  All goals remain ahead.
I'll be rooting for Michigan in The Game, of course, but Ohio State's got plenty of big wins left in them this year.

Dantonio mentioned realizing a lot of teams were playing aspects of MSUs defense, so teams were seeing it a lot and learning how to attack it, and he was slow to respond to that.

I feel the same about Meyer's offense, except he hasn't figured out the last part.  Possibly because unlike MSU, OSU is going to out talent everyone on their schedule, and grossly out talent probably 9 of their 12 opponents.  So maybe they are lulled into a false sense of security about their offense, when really they could roll out Woody's playbook and 9-3 is their floor.

Dantonio was the one that cracked the Urban Meyer Offense.
Bait JT into keeping the ball on the read option, then swarm.

Is this still the way you feel? I had kind of a longer response, and didn't want to go down it if this was just anger in the moment.
